lyrics

i remember doors and windows
buildings ratting with sound
the slate that slips off the roof
and tears a hole into the ground

i remember us laying against each other
before my bedroom turned upside down
and we fell into the ceiling and

ah-this is not a false alarm
where's the ceiling? is the roof collapsing in on us?
wait, it's just the aftershock
we're in a blackout in a supermarket stealing in the dark
we can't leave until the shaking stops
we can't leave and the world's falling apart

it's disgusting when you lose control
you thought that safety was so safe and pretty
but underneath the smoke that piles in the streets
are car wrecks in tomorrows headlines and

drop, cover, hold onto the leg of your bedpost
and watch plastic explode in the sky and
it's too late to prepare for the earthquake
count your blessings and close your eyes

it's disgusting when you lose control
and comfort is your only protection
but in all the cookie cutter houses are babies
screaming at the ground and
it's too late to prepare for the earthquake
count your blessings and close your eyes

ah- this is not a false alarm
welcome home, blowout sale, fill your shopping carts
wait, it's just the aftershock
two unknowns found living in the dark
we can't leave until the shaking stops
we can't leave and the world's falling apart

it's the end of the world
